About Aganocide Compounds

The Aganocide compounds are novel, proprietary, synthetic N-chlorinated antimicrobial molecules specifically designed by NovaBay to mimic the body's natural defense against infection. The Aganocide compounds maintain the biological activities while improving the stability of naturally occurring N-chlorinated antimicrobial molecules. These highly differentiated compounds may deliver the same or better efficacy than currently used antibiotics without contributing to the growing rise of bacterial resistance. In preclinical trials, the Aganocide compounds have shown to be highly effective against bacteria, viruses and fungi. They have also been demonstrated to be effective against bacteria in biofilm, which render most antibiotics ineffective. These compounds have a potentially broad therapeutic index providing a high degree of potency, good tolerability and dosing versatility and flexibility.
